GK SUPPER CLUB INSPIRATION
Before Atlanta Chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with stage-four cancer, he and his wife Jen hosted Prelude to Staplehouse supper clubs in their home as a precursor to opening their dream restaurant, Staplehouse. After his diagnosis, the purpose behind opening Staplehouse became bigger than they had imagined, and the Giving Kitchen was born. That was five years ago this May. In that time, because of Ryan’s vision, GK has helped over 1,000 restaurant workers in crisis with over $1.6 million. GK wants to honor Ryan’s vision for the Giving Kitchen for its fifth anniversary by taking our supporters back to the beginning with the GK Supper Club, inspired by Prelude to Staplehouse.
